Noah praised Butler.
Former NBA player Joakim Noah appeared on the podcast ‘Pardon My Take’ on the 17th (Korean time) and talked about Miami Heat’s Jimmy Butler.
Butler was the player who received the most attention in the playoffs last season. Led by Butler’s outstanding performance, Miami pulled off the feat of advancing to the finals, which was unusual for an 8th seed team.
Butler, who became the team’s unrivaled ace, was not expected to grow this much at the time of his debut. In the 2011 draft, he was selected only 30th overall.
Butler, who averaged only 8.5 minutes in his debut season, showed signs of growth by taking each step at a time. As a result, he succeeded in exceeding the average score of 20 points for the first time in his career in the 2014-2015 season.메이저사이트
The driving force behind Butler’s leap was tremendous passion. Noah, who had a meal together in Chicago, also praised Butler’s work ethic and cited one example as an example.
Noah praised Butler, saying, “The passion Jimmy Butler showed during the summer was unbelievable. People don’t know this, but Butler spent the entire summer without even watching TV.”
Butler’s efforts became the basis for overcoming his low ranking, physical weakness such as crocodile arms, and an unfavorable family environment. Now he has established himself as Miami’s new star, following in the footsteps of Dwyane Wade. Many fans have no choice but to pay attention to Miami’s progress in the playoffs this season due to Butler’s presence.
